For the first time, the 2017 edition of ONLY WATCH, thanks to the generosity of all brands involved, will offer a number of watches alongside unique experiences and collaborations money cannot buy.

Under the patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, and at the initiative of Luc Pettavino, President of L’Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies, ONLY WATCH is the world’s foremost charity auction entirely devoted to the research of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Since 2005, more than 25 million euros have been raised to finance research in this field.

"ONLY WATCH 2017 is a time for all parts of the watch world to come together and celebrate all that is good about the modern watch industry: innovation, technical know-how, creativity, and most importantly the desire to give back to the global community in this exceptional charity event. Christie's is honored to be a partner in this monumental auction and looks forward to providing a global stage to exhibit and present ONLY WATCH 2017", commented John Reardon, International Head of Christie’s Watch department.

Ahead of the auction in November, the 49 pieces will be exhibited throughout the world.

All auction proceeds of ONLY WATCH will entirely benefit scientific and medical research on neuromuscular diseases in general and on Duchenne muscular dystrophy in particular.
